Quick question regarding CWS

Recommended Posts

Hello, When the autopilot elevator mode is engaged and I want to adjust the pitch using CWS, is it simply a matter of moving my yoke to achieve the desired pitch angle and the autopilot will maintain that pitch? Thanks.J.C.

HiYes you simply pull/push until your desired ptch attitude or rate of climb/descent is reached then centre the yoke. The A/P will maintain your pitch.By the way, I believe CWS as a term, refers specifically to steering the aircraft, while A/P controls altitude.
